Man, I hate it when that happens...

Earlier today, I was putting together a little piece about the Israeli terrorist who killed his victims, then himself was killed by a furious mob. I was going to discuss how the Palestinians are calling on Israel to not investigate his death too closely, to simply apologize and let it slide. I was also going to mention how Israel has no death penalty (and more's the pity, but considering their own history with governments killing people wholesale it's understandable), while the Palestinians execute people all the time, occasionally bothering with such quaint customs as trials and the like.

But then I found out that I'd been beaten to the punch, and it'd been done with far more brevity and conciseness.

Meryl, I really gotta stop reading your blog. It keeps killing my own postings.

Wait, now brevity and conciseness are good things?

I think my head just exploded.

Jay Tea:

Lemme get you a spatula, Dylan... or would an eyedropper suffice?

Speaking in praise of long, thoughtful, analytical works does not mean that those are the only things worth reading. Meryl isn't doing that here -- she's commenting on recent events, not putting them in a historical context, discussing their significance and possible consequences. Her piece might serve as a catalyst for one (I'm toying with one such notion), though.
